    Hello everyone,

    The CC web server is being upgraded today - some time after 4pm.

    Not sure how long the down-time will be, but I would hope it would be no more than a couple of hours.

    The engineers need to shutdown the current server, remove the primary disk, install it in the new server, and run some tests.

    If everything goes okay the CC site should be back up and running again shortly afterwards.

    Cheers,
    Shaun :smile:

    Not really, not done yet.

    New server baulked at disk swap, so they're looking into it further.

    May be a few more outages before it is resolved. :tongue:

    Cheers,
    Shaun

    That last little blip was to put the second backup hard drive in the server.

    All the server replacement work should now be complete.

    If you do notice any problems, please let me know.

    Cheers,
    Shaun ;)
